THIRD THURSDAY ART EVENT: IN BLOOM – GARDENING TALK WITH BENJAMIN FUTA

VIRTUAL LECTURE
THURSDAY, APRIL 15, 7 PM
FREE; Advance Registration required.

 

In celebration of National Garden Month, and inspired by the artwork of Boom Bloom, multi-talented gardening expert, public speaker, and founder of Botany (botanyorbust.com), Benjamin Futa will share a special lecture that ‘digs a little deeper’ into the topic of gardening. Join in this virtual talk to learn practical tools and strategies for integrating ecologically vibrant plants into established landscapes. Together, we’ll demystify essential landscape design elements for homeowners and explore regenerative plant combinations suited for urban and suburban settings.

Ben Futa has more than ten year’s experience engaging audiences from home gardeners to college students and green industry peers. Futa founded Botany in 2018 as an outlet to explore new ideas and develop creative concepts related to the “culture” in horticulture. Today, Botany has grown to include a growing suite of horticultural communications including writing, television, web, radio, public speaking, photography, and a Pop-Up Garden Shop in collaboration with Thyme of Grace in South Bend, Indiana.
